Alexandria, Virginia Mayor Bill Euille released this statement on the October 7th homicide on Belle Pre Way in the North Old Town area of Alexandria, Virginia.
“Any homicide in our city is one too many; is totally unacceptable and most unfortunate. Crime will not be tolerated by our citizens and communities. We respect the high quality of life shared by all, and pleased that our crime rate is at an all time 40 year low.
This is only the second homicide year to date, and I am confident our police will be diligent in their investigation and will bring this case to a close in a timely manner. However, I would encourage our citizens to share any information they may have about this incident with the police, to assist them with this investigation.
Our thoughts are with Mr. Williams’ family and friends.
We will always remain a safe city for our residents and visitors.”
